Do Not Take Your Vitamins With Coffee

Vitamins and Coffee: A Bad Mix

Two common morning routines for many busy women are drinking joe and popping vitamins — often using the coffee to swallow the pills. The problem is, according to Fitness magazine, these two morning rituals don't play well together.

Since coffee is a stimulant, it makes everything move through the gastrointestinal tract more quickly than usual, and this increased speed hampers the body's ability to absorb all the nutrients your vitamin has to offer. The magazine advises waiting 10 to 15 minutes after finishing your cup of joe before taking your vitamins — it's well worth the wait.
